Xbox One Elite Bundle Delayed in Japan, New Xbox Experience and Backwards Compatibility Launching in Japan By Year End
Bummer, for all 300 Japanese Xbox One fans.
The Xbox One Elite Bundle has been delayed by just a teensy bit in Japan, Microsoft announced today- it was originally due to launch there on November 6. It has now seen a nearly two week delay to November 19 instead.
No reason was given for the delay, although we can imagine that, with Xbox One sales being as dismal as they are in Japan, it’s a low priority territory for Microsoft, and they are probably just allocating stock on a priority basis. Microsoft also announced that the New Xbox Experience powered by Windows 10, as well as Xbox 360 backwards compatibility for the Xbox One, will be launching on the Xbox One by year end.
This, too, is a bit of a delay from the November release date we have for the rest of the world, though of course, the Japanese window is vague enough that NXE could be launching there at the same time as everywhere else too.
